Welcome to Alpha Xi Delta
at South Dakota State University

Welcome to the Epsilon Eta Chapter of Alpha Xi Delta! I am so glad that you have taken the time to visit our site. These women, I am privileged to call sisters, are a truly remarkable group of individuals whom are dedicated to philanthropic, academic, and social excellence. Since our colonization at SDSU in 1968, our chapter has been faithfully dedicated to serving our community, strengthening the bonds of our cherished sisterhood, and improving our beloved South Dakota State University. Inspired by the rich tradition and high ideals laid out by our founders in 1893, our chapter has been guided for forty-eight years on SDSU’s campus.


The women of Alpha Xi Delta grow together through our devotion to sisterhood, leadership, knowledge, and service. Whether we are raising money for our national philanthropy, Autism Speaks, or showing our SDSU spirit at fine arts and sporting events, Alpha Xi Delta's can be seen in leadership roles across campus. Alpha Xi Delta is more than just letters. It’s a place where we celebrate diversity, knowing everyone has something unique to offer. It’s a place where you can thrive and excel in school, make a difference through community service, and be surrounded by genuine women who allow you to be completely and truly yourself. The experience of being a sister of Alpha Xi Delta instills life-long values, beginning as collegians and continuing as alumnae after graduation.


Please take a few minutes to explore our site and learn more about Alpha Xi Delta and the opportunities we can provide for you here at South Dakota State University. Whether you are a young woman considering Greek life, one of our beloved alumnae seeking the latest chapter update, or perhaps a friend or family member of one of our sweet sisters, we are grateful for your interest in and support of our chapter.

Feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions regarding our chapter or how to join the Greek Life community here at South Dakota State University.
